About Atlantic Cup

Atlantic Cup typically kicks off with a welcome/draw party for the players on Friday, matches played Saturday and Sunday, Saturday evening banquet, and a trophy presentation Sunday afternoon. Teams are composed of all ability levels (GLTA Open, A, B, C, D) for singles and doubles competition. Players are responsible for their own lodging, food, and travel expenses. Each city's team contributes $2700 to the event (covers court fees, banquet, a giveaway, water and breakfast items), the majority of which has been covered by a budgeted contribution from CTA operating funds.
